Work-Life Balance

To maintain our work-life balance, have you ever thought that what we ‘Live to Work’ or Work to Live’?

Never get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life.” —Dolly Parton, singer

The purpose of this article is to tell what is more important for a successful life while considering work and life.  Work and family both having different importance for your life.  However, it is noticeable that job and family sometimes spill over into each other.

“You can’t have everything you want, but you can have the things that really matter to you.” —Marissa Mayer, former president and CEO of Yahoo

You need to realize that whatever you do, you can’t get everything in your life. For a successful life, it’s important to give emphasis to what you have rather what you don’t have. This only makes life stressful because you won’t be able to enjoy what you have. What you do is you try to spend more time at your work and less with your family and friends. Remember we are not going to take any money or luxury with us. In the end, you won’t say that I wish I had spent more time at work.

“Work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. The other four balls—family, health, friends, and integrity—are made of glass. If you drop one of these, it will be irrevocably scuffed, nicked, perhaps even shattered.” —Gary Keller, real estate entrepreneur

Remember what is most important for happiness. What is long-lasting? Is it a career or family or health? You can earn money at any phase of your life but you can never regain your lost relationship. You can’t be called those who died, who broke while waiting for you. Same as it was difficult to regain your health. What is damage, it’s not easy to be as fit it as you were.

“We think, mistakenly, that success is the result of the amount of time we put in at work, instead of the quality of time we put in.” —Arianna Huffington, author, and businesswoman

Now come to the most sensible and point of focus. Remember that the finest thing is to be efficient and effective at your workplace and in your life. If you are stressful, you will never be able to concentrate on anything. Anyone who is stressful from family or health can’t position 100% at work or anywhere in life. So the most important is balance your life and work because you can’t be called prosperous in your business life if your personal life is not blissful.
